Freeport-McMoRan Honors Veterans Today

November 11, 2020

Throughout our nation's history, courageous men and women have served in the Armed Forces to preserve and protect the freedom we enjoy.

Today, Freeport-McMoRan joins the United States in saying thank you to those who have served or are serving in the nation's military. This includes many employees in our workforce, who bring skills and experience that make us a better and stronger company.

Veterans Day is an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifice and contributions of those who answer the call to our nation's highest form of service. It also is an opportunity to recognize the families who support them. As we extend our deepest appreciation and respect to service members and their families, we encourage all employees to do the same.

Many veterans do not go around telling stories of their heroism. It is up to us to recognize their service. In this spirit, we are honoring our veterans with community newspaper ads like the one shown and this special company video. While it features just a few of the veterans in our workforce, the video pays tribute to all who have served in our Freeport-McMoRan family.

Honoring veterans on November 11 is a century-long tradition that began in 1919 with Armistice Day, marking the first anniversary of the end of World War I. It was renamed Veterans Day and made an annual observance by Congress in 1926 and a national holiday beginning in 1938.

From all of us at Freeport-McMoRan, thank you veterans for your service. We are proud you are a part of our team.
